Mrs. Karen Walsh

Welcome to a new school year!  I am proud to be at Franklin where I have taught since 2004.  Becoming a parent, volunteering in my children's classrooms, and believing in the value of education led me to the teaching profession.  I believe that all of us learn from each other and I embrace the principles of our PBIS program to be respectful, responsible, and positive. Prior to my teaching career, I was a psychotherapist in community mental health centers in New Jersey and Vermont.  I worked  with individuals, families, and groups and learned the importance of seeing each person as an individual.  I have had the privilege of living in Missouri, California (two times, once in the northern part and now in the southern), Massachusetts, New Jersey, Vermont, and North Carolina.  I look forward to working with your children and you this year.  Go Falcons!
